's stepping in or that russia has a right to defend the interests of ethnic russians in ukraine. and that the president spent much of that the phone call basically disagreeing with vladimir putin. so i think that that goes to what we've been hearing over the last several days from administration officials that there's just sort of a fundamental disagreement over the facts on the ground as they stand now in ukraine and why putin is doing what he's doing. what's interesting is that the senior administration official sort of challenged the notion that putin is acting unhinged. they reiterated this to us that they believe he is acting consistently, that this has been going on since the invasion of georgia back in 2008 and that putin, according to administration officials, just feels threatened when there are popular uprisings against governments aligned with him. that was the motivating factor for what happened in crimea. and wham may be happening in the rest of ukraine. and one thing we also picked up on during this meeting is that the president did speak with angela merkel, the ge

the russians personally and directly if they interfered in ukraine, if that were the case. if we put them in nato, then we're all the way on the front lines ourselves. why would this country want to bring our front all the way to the border between ukraine and russia? what would be the national interest in doing that? >> i have to make a generalization. what we're witnessing in this crisis in ukraine, and essentially, it's moving the old metaphorical curtain in berlin right to russia's borders. if it stay there's, my kids, grandkids are going to have to live with it, and it's going to be more dangerous than the last cold war. what this represents is a collapse of bipartisan american policy towards russia. and therefore everyone, hadley and all the rest who are centrally involved in implementing this policy are trying to make it go away by doing one of two things. blame only putin. only putin is responsible. he may be hitler or even worse, and say let's fight. and you can't bring ukraine into nato unless you change the rules, because no country that doesn't control its own territory can be

russian citizens in ukraine. in fact, "the new york times" reported this week that russian tourists have been sent to eastern ukraine where they are stirring up anger and resentment against the ukrainian government in kiev. arguing that russia can militarily invade another country any time, to protect russian people is an ominous suggestion that raises alarms for independent sovereign nations all along the russian borders and also raises the chapters of history back in the middle of the 20th century, which we need not recount here in detail. one need only look at the two regions of georgia that have been militarily occupied by russia since 2008. russia continues to illegally occupy these areas and has erected fences along administrative lines and permanent military bases in violation of the cease-fire agreement negotiated with the european union. now, i have been there myself and i have seen the deeply troubling permanent bases and boundary fences in georgia. the president of the republic of georgia came to see me the day after the final ceremonies at sochi at the olympic ceremonies, and
